Twenty $1000 scholarships will be awarded to individuals displaying a great passion for the livestock show industry and/or livestock production. An agriculture major or a career goal in livestock is not a requirement but a continued future involvement in the livestock industry is. The scholarship is funded solely through Sullivan Supply and Sullivan Supply South. The scholarship recipients will be selected by a committee of five industry leaders that will be kept confidential to promote objectivity. Members of the Sullivan family or Sullivan Supply employees or immediate family members will not serve on this committee nor will they be eligible to receive the scholarships. All scholarship recipients will be announced on our website on May 1, 2018.
